  1. Hi Rossana,

    Yes, it’s ok to spike the bag PROVIDED you calculate (on your own), the safe rate of potassium supplementation (0.5 mEq/kg/hour) based on the weight of hte patient. As for antibiotic choices, I don’t traditionally reach for amikacin unless it’s a VERY severe, Gram negative infection.
